Cru is one tough cookie to squeeze a smile out of. But I’ll do all the silly faces and funny noises I can think of to hear him giggle. I think newborn giggles are quite possibly the best sound on earth. It’s been a while since my last update, but all of his early tummy troubles pretty much disappeared after week 10. And here we are at 3 months (can you believe that!?). I don’t want to jinx it, but he has been a dream the last few weeks. Sleeping a lot and just a happy-go-lucky little dude. He is the biggest baby to come from our side of the family yet. The boy likes to eat. I feel like a new thigh roll appears every week! Most everywhere I go I need to make sure I have some sort of nursing cover to accommodate for his healthy appetite. One of my favorite brands, The Honest Company, partnered with Piece & Co. on this artisan-made 2-in-1 nursing cover + scarf that I am wearing. Through this collaboration, mothers in rural India received a steady paycheck, access to healthcare, and aid for their children’s education. You can learn more about the collection’s impact HERE. A product made for mothers, having a huge impact on mothers across the ocean, is a pretty cool thing. You can purchase the scarf in three colors / patterns: block-printed chevron, indigo plain weave or multi-color.
My butt will be here for a good part of the morning :)

And of course, I’d love it if you shopped RYLEE & CRU this holiday season! I won’t be offering any discounts today, out of fairness to all of you who supported me by purchasing at full value on the launch date and the few days after. But I’ll give you a “cyber hug” if that’s any consolation! haha. On my ETSY shop however, I am offering 20% off with code CYBER. Happy shopping! xx

I’m all about the relaxed look these days. Getting out the door is not as simple of a task as it used to be, so I’m loving pieces that are easy to throw on yet look pulled together. This OWM top is made of silk-like Japanese cupro and is one of those great transitional pieces that can easily be dressed up or down. And these Ace & Jig pants are the most comfortable piece of cloth you’ll ever own. They are the perfect ‘statement’ to a simple outfit.
The necklace I am wearing is from one of my favorite shops BRIKA, by designer LunaSol. Brika is a beautifully curated online shop that features a number of independent designers and a truly unique product range. I am especially drawn to their collection of jewelry. The necklace I am wearing is hand-cut and stamped by the designer, Lindsey of LunaSol…you can read her story here. Today, we are actually giving away one of these Safi Necklaces on instagram!
